Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Father of Pakistani Nation)

“The weak and the defenseless in this world invite aggression from others. The best way we can serve peace is by removing the temptation from the path of those who think we are weak and, for that reason, they can bully or attack us. That temptation can only be removed if we make ourselves so strong that nobody dare entertain any aggressive designs against us. Pakistan has come to stay and no power on earth can destroy it.”

( Quaid-e-Azam – February, 1948 )

Correct Sujuud one of the best treatments for eyes

Assalam alaikum dear family and friends,

I read this information some where. Found it so good that I want to share it with you all.

If the headache is in front of the head, it’s treatment is sleeping. If it’s on top of the head, it’s treatment is eating and drinking water. If the headache is at the back of the head, then it’s treatment is releasing stress. The treatment of increasing the power of our eye sight. This is very important to those whose eyes are weak and also to everyone. Eyes muscles suffer as days pass by, which will lead them not to be able to have eye contact the accurate way.

In order to restore power in our eyes and keep them always powerful, we need to follow the following sunnah in our salah. We should always keep our eyes open during the sujuud and stand up while looking at the sujuud spot and keep

our eyes focussed on the spot of sujuud through out our salah. The wisdom behind looking at the sujuud spot is that while in rukuu, the eye muscles will pressure the lens to increase vision and while we get up the eye muscles will loosen. While in sujuud the lens will shrink because of the distance between the eyes and the ground. When we get up again it’ll loosen the eye muscles. This practice we are doing each day during our prayer exercising our eye muscles. We can perform it each day 17 times or as much as we want. Our prophet (SAW) was always instructing to open our eyes during

sujuud and now scientists have proven

that this practice works in increasing the power of eye sight. Subhana Allah for this great wisdom of opening our eyes during sujuud. This deserves to be read and shared with others.

Thanks a lot for reading it, and for being with me.

May Allah make this and the hereafter, both the lives easy for us all. Aameen.

Allah Hafiz,

Samia.

Viking history from a ring found in a grave in Birka, 900 CE.

Assalaam alaikum dear family and friends,

I came across this very interesting article published in “The Washington Post”.

It shows Vikings’ Islamic connection. Such knowledge full. Therefore I wanted to share it with you all.

In the modern-era, Scandinavian countries have become known for their sometimes awkward embrace of migrants from the Arab and Muslim world. But the history behind that relationship goes back far further than you might expect.

Consider the case of a ring discovered in a Viking grave in Birka, a historic trading center in what is now Sweden. The woman in the grave died in the 9th century and was discovered around a thousand years later by the famous Swedish archaeologist Hjalmar Stolpe, who spent years excavating the grave sites around Birka.

The ring is unique. Made of silver alloy, it contained a stone with an inscription written in the Kufic Arabic script widely used between the 8th and 10th centuries. “For/to Allah,” the inscription read. It was the only known Viking Age ring with an Arabic inscription to be found in the entire of Scandinavia. Exactly how the woman got the ring wasn’t clear – she was found wearing typical Scandinavian dress, so presumably the ring arrived through trade.

Now, new research from biophysicist Sebastian Wärmländer of Stockholm University and his colleagues has confirmed exactly how unique the ring was. In the journal Scanning, the researchers recount how they used a scanning electron microscope to investigate the origins of the ring. Notably, they discovered that the stone in the ring is actually colored glass – at the time an exotic material for the Vikings, though it had been made for thousands of years in the Middle East and North Africa.

Even more notably, the ring displayed a remarkable lack of wear, leading the authors to speculate that it had few – if any – owners in-between its creator and its Viking owner. Instead, Wärmländer and his colleagues suggest, it appears to show direct contact between Viking society and the Abbasid Caliphate that dominated much of the Middle East and North Africa. The authors write, “it is not impossible that the woman herself, or someone close to her, might have visited — or even originate from — the Caliphate or its surrounding regions.”

While physical evidence of it is unusual, there have been plenty of accounts of Scandinavians from this period crossing paths with the early Muslim world. By the 11th century Vikings had become known for their lengthy sea voyages, journeying as far west as the Americas and likely reaching Constantinople and even Baghdad when they traveled the other way. And while contemporary accounts of Vikings from Western Europe suggests terrifying invaders, most accounts suggest the Vikings, likely fearful of the more sophisticated warriors in the region, instead looked for trade when they went east.

“The Vikings were very interested in silver, not so much in gold,” Farhat Hussain, a historian, told the National newspaper of Abu Dhabi in 2008. “It was a status symbol for Viking men and women, they even wanted to be buried with silver.”

Still, the Scandinavians did raise some eyebrows on their journeys. In an otherwise complimentary description of people now believed to be Vikings, Ahmad ibn Fadlan, an emissary of the Abbasid Caliph, wasn’t so sure about their hygiene. “They are the filthiest of all Allah’s creatures,” the Arab writer wrote in the 10th century. “They do not purify themselves after excreting or urinating or wash themselves when in a state of ritual impurity after coitus and do not even wash their hands after food.”

Exactly how the woman in Birka and the ring fit into this relationship isn’t known. It may never be known.

“I don’t know if it was bought or looted and of course I wish I could know how it all came about that this woman got it – friendly or otherwise. If she went far from home or if someone brought it back for her?” Linda Wåhlander, a teacher at the Statens historiska museum who worked on the project, explained in an e-mail. “I am an archaeologist but I sometimes wish I was a timetraveller.”

Have a nice time,

Allah hafiz,

On the eighty-seventh birthday of our Dear Dear Beloved Daddyjan, Janab AVM Muhammad Latif Tambra shaheed.

Assalaam alaikum Dear Family and Friends,

Today on the Third of March 1928/ 10 Ramadan 1346 A.H.,  our dear dear Daddyjan was born. Today is our Beloved Daddyjan’s 87th birthday. He spent a glorious, satisfactory, fulfilling and wonderful life.

On this day we remember him by offering prayers for him and by offering supplications for him. May Allah Ji accept all his prayers and supplications as well which he offered in his life time, and give him high place in Jannat ul Firdaus. Aameen. And may Allah forgive his all saghira kabira gunaah (Major and Minor Sins). Aameen, Thume Aameen.

And may Allah reward him for the good influence he has been on us all and to all people he ever met. Forever. He was a Mohsin, a Good Doer, a Truthful, an Honest, and a Sincere person. May Allah SubHanWaTaala reward him for all the good he did to His people on this earth, to the ones who are living and to the ones, who are here no more as well. Aameen. May Allah Ji make his Darajat Buland, give him higher places in Jannat ul Firdaus with the Illiyeen, and with all those good people he loved in his life but who died before him or after him. Aameen.

He was a university in himself. We have so much to learn from him. And to live the good way he taught us by doing practically. And to exert a good influence around us as he did. And to keep his legacy alive.

May Allah Pak make us and our children be Sadqae Jariya for him and for our beloved respected Mother. And may our off-springs be Sadqae Jariya for us too. Aameen.
